Review:

"A gripping yarn" Guardian

From the Back Cover:

'Therese Raquin' is a clinically observed, sinister tale of adultery and murder among the lower orders in nineteenth-century Paris. Zola's dispassionate dissection of the motivations of his characters, mere 'human beasts' who kill in order to satisfy their lust, is much more than an atmospheric Second Empire period-piece. 'Therese Raquin' stands as a key early manifesto of the French Naturalist movement, of which Zola was the founding father. Even today, this novel has lost none of its power to shock.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: French . Brand New Book. A gothic tale of murder and adultery, Therese Raquin was denounced as pornography on its publication in 1867. Putrid literature was how Louis Ulbach described the novel in a contemporary review. Zola defended himself against these attacks in his preface to the second edition, in which he outlined his aim to produce a new, scientific form of realism. The novel marks a crucial step in Zola s development and is a major early work of Naturalism. In his introduction to Therese Raquin, Brian Nelson places the novel in its cultural, intellectual and artistic contexts, and compares Zola s scientific aims with his actual practice in this work. The scientific status of Naturalist fiction remains problematic; in the final analysis it is influenced by literary models and conventions. Zola s powerful mythopoeic imagination does much to counteract the mechanistic view of humanity the novel was intended to embody. The myth of the fall is, indeed, fundamental to Zola s Naturalistic vision. Seller Inventory # AAW9781853992872
